Also, every end of the trains has a separate driver cabin, so that it doesn’t need to turn its head and can move faster between destinations. One more fun thing, assembling the alternative coaches promises to optimize the precise acceleration/deceleration and the distribution of motive power.

Train 18 is equipped with the full air-conditioner bringing the more comfort to passengers. The seats in the Executive Class can rotate pursuant to the train direction.

CCTVs and emergency talk-back units are also assembled in the coaches as a protection method for passengers. Besides, through CCTVs in the driver’s cabin, he easily overlooks passengers’ movement on the platform before the door is shut down.
